Membership

How does membership billing work?

If you become a 36°N member in the middle of a month, you’ll pay a prorated rate for the rest of that month. Members are then charged automatically on the first of every month. Credit and debit cards, as well as ACH are accepted as forms of payment.

How much does it cost to be a member, and what the benefits?

Learn more about our membership options by clicking here.

I want to be able to access the space on nights and weekends. Can I?

Desk members and office members automatically get 24/7 access to the space. Coworking members can add 24/7 access for an additional $50/month. All members with 24/7 access must complete a background check before getting a key fob.

If we’re both here part-time, can my business partner and I share one membership?

Unfortunately, no. Each individual must have their own membership if they plan to use the space. However, if one of you will be present more than the other, you may want to get a membership for one and day passes for the other. Day passes are $20 each. Contact our front desk to purchase day passes.

What if I have clients or partners coming in for a short meeting? Do they need a membership or a day pass?

If your client or team member is coming in for a scheduled meeting in a conference room, he or she does not need a membership nor a day pass. We just ask that he or she checks in at the front desk so we can keep track of who's coming and going.

Can I receive mail at 36 Degrees North if I am a member?

Desk and office members are welcome to receive mail and use 36 E Cameron St as their listed address. Coworking and Connect members can only receive mail if they rent a 36°N mailbox for $25/month.

Do I have to sign a long-term lease to join a coworking space?

Nope. All coworking memberships are on a month-to-month basis.

Do you offer discounts for students and teachers?

Yes! Teachers, professors and students of all levels get a discounted membership rate. Learn more here.

Does each person on my team have to have a membership?

If your team member will be working out of 36°N, then yes. However, if your team member only comes in for a meeting every so often, that person is considered your guest and does not need a membership.

If your guest is staying for a full day, we ask that they purchase a day pass or meet with you in a conference room.

How can my team get an office?

Our offices are usually completely full. To get on a waiting list, fill out this application. Our team will reach out when an office becomes available.

I'd like to get a desk, but I heard there's a waiting list. How do I get on the waiting list?

Typically, you must have a coworking membership before moving up to the desk membership level. Once you become a coworking member, let our staff know that you’d like a desk, and we’ll get you on the waiting list.
